People who watch too much of it, start quoting the dialogues and scenes from the show’s various seasons, but worst of it all they start acting like the characters of the show. It is so easy to empathise with the cast that it has cast a worrying shadow over the mental health of this generation. We list out some of the ways in which friends has affected the mental health of the people all around the globe.
When you think Chandler is the funniest guy in the worldNo, he is not. Get over it. Chandler's vane sarcasm quickly becomes too predictable and unimaginative after a certain point.

If you think Monica is a tough nutNot sure about the 'tough' part but she surely is a nut.

She cries when exposed or faced with a tight situation. Some feel her to be a fighter but I say she is a bad loser who lacks integrity.
When Ross becomes a guy you all love to make fun ofThe perennial punching bag for all the other characters, Ross Galler is apparently the most intelligent guy around.
